Short Term Missions

First Baptist Church is also very active in short-term missions. Each year, during Spring Break, the high school group sends approximately 100 high schoolers and 20 adults to minister in Mexico. Our college group has traveled to New Orleans to help with the Hurricane Katrina relief effort. Additionally, we regularly send out teams throughout the world to countries like Italy, Albania, Mozambique, Russia, and Thailand.

Short-term missions allows us to develop a mutually-beneficial relationship between those of us here at home and our missionaries on the field, many of whom call our church home. It also provides a tangible representation of the international body of Christ to the national believers with whom our missionaries work. Furthermore, our own church body receives the blessing that comes from obeying the Lord’s commands and helping fulfill the Great Commission.
